ARB fridge freezers are the ideal way to keep your food and beverages chilled or frozen on your 4x4 adventures, regardless of ambient conditions. Not to be confused with less effective 12 volt 'coolers', the ARB unit is a true refrigerator/freezer. Own one and you'll never again find your lunch water-logged by shifting ice, and there'll always be a cold drink on hand during the sweltering summer months. The 50 quart model is the most popular size. Suitable for many medium to large SUV's, wagons and pickups the internal capacity which boasts the ability to hold 72, 12 ounce cans.
Powerful, Reliable Cooling and Freezing Power Many other 12-volt coolers use weak compressors to reduce the temperature of your food and beverages. ARB fridge freezers come equipped with robust Danfoss compressors to provide powerful refrigeration that can actually cools your food and drinks down--and then keeps them cold. All ARB fridge freezer models are capable of reducing the interior temperature to 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
ARB fridge freezers are designed to both actively and passively cool your food and drinks--even while the vehicle is off. When the internal temperature of the fridge rises above the digital thermostat's setting, the compressor activates to cool the contents back down. The adjustable integrated battery protection system allows the fridge to sip battery power while your vehicle is off, keeping your food and drinks cold without overly draining your battery. Heavy duty insulation and hardware helps maintain chilly temperatures. The 50-quart model is able to maintain sub-freezing temperatures in 90 degree heat while only drawing 0.87 amps per hour from a 12-volt power source. That’s less power than a single headlamp draws. Once to temperature, ARB fridge freezers consume the least amount of power when compared to other leading brands.
Generous Compartments Let You Take More on the Road The 50-quart model is the most popular ARB fridge size, and is perfect for small groups. Its footprint is suitable for most medium to large SUVs, wagons, and pickup trucks.
Heavy-Duty Construction for Years of Use Designed with travelers and off-road drivers in mind, all ARB fridge freezer models come equipped with a super-durable patented hinge system with a front-opening lid that provides easy access to fridge contents. This design is compatible with ARB fridge freezer slides, which provide quick drawer-like access to the entire unit and allows you to bolt the fridge to your vehicle. ARB fridge freezers can be mounted at extreme angles up to 30 degrees without affecting operation or reliability.
Two separate power cords are included. The DC power cord connects to your vehicle's DC power outlet, providing 12 and 24-volt power to the unit while you're on the go. The AC power cord plugs into a standard household electrical socket, and supplies power to the fridge when you're at home or at your destination. A built-in cable retention system keeps the power cords neat when not in use. The power system is completely self-contained within the fridge unit, so there's no external transformers or power "bricks" to worry about.
As with any refrigerator, it is important to have quality wiring running to the power outlet that you are plugging the fridge into. This minimizes harmful voltage drops which can harm internal parts. For increased product life, it is recommended that you protect the fridge freezer from weather and the elements.
Best thing I ever owned. Took it across country.. Worked great in and out of hotels and car. Stays cold for a long time unplugged. great product!!!

50qt ARB fridge
I hard-mounted the 50 qt in my 2012 Jeep Wrangler, on a sliding tray. Of course, this required the removal of the rear seat. I keep water bottles in the fridge at all times. I drink a lot of water and absolutely love reaching back for an ice cold drink whenever I want.
On camping trips the fridge is worth its weight in gold. No more soggy food. No more melting ice dumping water in my Jeep on 4X4 trails. This is an outstanding product.
In fact, I'm installing another 50 qt in my pop-up camper after quickly growing tired of the oem fridge after the very first outting with my new camper.
The ARB is my favorite aftermarket accessory.

Best fridge on the market WOW!!
This fridge eliminates the need for worrying about buying ice and keeps food dry. Don't have to worry about draining battery. Holds more food than a cooler with ice. Don't have to worry about water slushing around and spilling in the car.
